of a balanced approach that protects the american economy, the ryan republican budget guts education, medical research, infrastructure and even public safety. the ryan republican budget would actually jeopardize the economic recovery. it wouldn't help it. and in case you're thinking it -- huge and painful cuts can buy an awful lot of deficit reduction, think again. instead congressman ryan's cuts will buy more tax breaks for the wealthiest among us. this budget isn't a serious attempt to reduce the deficit. meaningful deficit reduction will require shared sacrifice, including contributions from those who can best afford to contribute. today budget committee chairman patty murray will introduce a budget that reflects the principle of balance. senator murray's plan, the democratic plan, will cut wasteful spending, reduce the deficit and close tax loopholes that benefit the rich. and it will invest in the things that help our economy grow: education, preventive health care, worker training, roads and bridges. it will invest in a strong middle class. and unlike the ryan republican plan, it won't

they need to compete in a very tough economy. today the federal government currently operates more than 50 different job training programs, many of which are duplicative. at a cost of $18 million annually to taxpayers. with nearly 20 million americans unemployed or underemployed, it's time to cut through the red tape and start training individuals with the skills they need to find high-paying middle-class jobs. mrs. wagner: that's why the house will take up the skills lap, which overlaps training programs which eliminates unnecessary red tape so state and local resources goes directly to job seekers. according to the report released by st. louis community college, 76% of employers said that employees lack proper training to contribute right away on the most important demand certificates for job openings were for registered nurses. the skills acts addresses those needs. we need to invest in nurses, manufacturing assistants and cut the ineffective government programs that do little to train employees for the skills they need. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back
